I create classes that provide a welcoming space for all types of body shapes, ages, and physical abilities. My classes provide modifications and options to maximize access and individualization. I stress to practitioners that they should never label any part of their body as ‘bad;’ we should love every part of ourselves, even those parts that aren’t living up to society’s idea of perfection. And lastly, I strive to create a safe space for connection, community, and movement with a purpose.

Growing up, I was a serious dancer (ballet/modern) up until I completed a minor in dance from the College of Charleston in 2011. Yoga was introduced to me as ‘fancy stretching’ that could improve my flexibility and mobility as I could relate it back to dance; and in the years after college, yoga was something I did for exercise. During Covid, I finally took time to reflect on what my mind and body needed. It was time to rediscover my yoga practice in a different way. I joined the Aluma Yoga community in 2021 and have never looked back.

Outside of yoga, I live in Cockeysville with my dog, Watson, and two cats, Moriarty and Mycroft. I enjoy gardening, hiking, and my day job as a professional archaeologist.
